Temporarily Insane
by Vicki Batman

No man. Bad job. And Murder. Hattie Cooks is still searching for her dream job and one might be the Big Apple, far from friends, family, and Allan Wellborn, the man who still makes her heart race. In the meantime, she finds temporary employment at an accounting firm where two auditor friends turn up dead.

Detective Allan Wellborn dropped Hattie for Blonde Bimbo who, coincidentally, is employed at NLB where fishy things are taking place. When Allan interviews Hattie, he must determine why
all signs point to her as a suspect.

Can Hattie discover why Allan dumped her and who is murdering auditors before death strikes again?


Now for an Excerpt:

His legs were kinda knobby in knee socks. What could be underneath? He was sorta on the thin side. So maybe, they were skinny? However, if he wanted to meet girls, his geeky socks had to go. “Stuart, the look you’re sporting is from the fifties. I’m telling you girls don’t go for guys wearing socks with sandals.”

Stuart scratched the side of his nose while considering what I’d said. “Okay.” He sat on the threshold step and took off the sandals, then the socks.

I leaned over to watch. He was right—Stuart had ugly legs. Ugly. Scrawny. Very gorilla-hairy legs. Yet firm calves. I shuddered. If his legs were like this, what…

Don’t go there. Don’t go there.

Hi, Wendy! and thank you for hostessing me today. Another of my favorite excerpts featuring Stuart Steems. He had issues with clothing. And knee socks. lol

Hi, Lisa! So glad you are with me today. Do you know someone like Stuart?

Catholic school gave me issues with knee socks (they never stayed up!), so I've avoided wearing them since...

Hi, Trix! At my sn's school the girls wore anklets. Sometimes, they put glitter paint on their shoes, too. lol

Hi, Marcy! You are most welcome. How did Friday get here so quickly?

I can't help but laugh at these excerpts you share with us. Stuart sounds like someone I knew when I was a kid. Awesome personality, but strange fashion choices. But then again, I'm no runway model myself. LOL. I wish everyone a happy and safe weekend!! Oh, I saw your reply from yesterday's stop! I am definitely going to sign up for your newsletter! :)
